Feeling Crafty? and the Hot Chocolate Crawl!

This traveling, rogue punk craft brigade makes all of its crafts out of unusual materials (such as tampons, I heart NYC condoms, customized rape whistles, tiny subversive paintings, punk felt ornaments, and more). They’re having a craft party and show featuring home made crafts, indie gifts priced right, (no need to go to Walmart or Banana Republic this year), cheap drinks, home made snacks, live musical and burlesque performances by Jessica Delfino and the ChiChiones, and holiday spirit. Neo-feminist fun for the whole family, except for the kids.

Their message: 'œIt’s good for society to learn and grow as human beings by finding where their boundaries are, and then pushing them a bit further. If they can’t do it for themselves, We’re here to help.  This event is going to be fun, strange and not like your average craft-a-thon.'

Say goodbye to Swiss Miss, because this experience will change your relationship with chocolate.  Hot chocolate, that is.

Join NYC Food Crawl for the December Hot Chocolate Crawl. Meet at the southwest corner of Washington Square Park (near the chess tables) and spend the afternoon sampling a wide variety of hot chocolates ranging from spicy Aztec-inspired blends, to decadent Italian cioccolata densa, to sensuous drinking chocolate stuffed with oversized marshmallows.

Hot chocolate scorecard and map will be provided at first location, so come on time. No RSVP necessary.  Bring friends or make new ones.  Pay as you go.  Come hungry, leave happy.

Danielle Levanas - Bargain Soul Huntress

Danielle was raised by a pack of coyotes in the Los Angeles hills. Since arriving in NY in 2001, she has had any number of strange jobs, including back-up singing for JELVIS (the Jewish Elvis), starting the non-profit LYDIA, and writing political cabarets. A huge advocate for travel as a way of life, you can find her at the Brooklyn Public Library when her bank account is empty, fantasizing about where to head off to next.
